Hello all! I've been a TripAdvisor member for a number of years now, and I use the forums for assistance and advice often, thanks! A little about me, I'm an independent traveler who is always on the lookout for a nice bargain, boutique hotel. I have high standards and expectations for a nurturing environment and don't know how I've been so lucky to find such lodgings as often as I have! If you feed me homemade banana pancakes for breakfast, I will stay in a closet if I must. I always use public transportation, so staying in city center is important to me. Even though I'm a 'pensioner', I continue to work, but take time off for travel.
I love to explore and seeing the world, ancient cities, architecture and art touches my heart. Meanwhile, admiring the people of different cultures feels at times overwhelming. I make friends along the way, and we stay in contact. I always feel a strong connection with my fellow travelers and am very pleased to hear about their next destinations!
